Pop-Up Markets

MinorOak celebrates its history as a 1930s market building with occasional Saturday pop-ups, coordinating with Sneinton Market Square and Pitch (formerly Avenues Independent Markets). MinorOak’s markets always concentrate on local makers, vintage, upcycling, and direct trade. MinorOak has hosted dozens of pop-up markets, including Pagan markets for Samhain, Beltane, and Yule, Christmas markets, LARP (Live Action Role Play) markets, and privately managed market events.
